    Don't worry. Its quite a common phenomena when you start a new diet and you're feeling well motivated.

    Perhaps if it goes on for more than a week you need to look at ways to incorporate more food into your diet so you don't go into starvation mode

    But thats the beauty of WW you can eat loads and still lose weight. You might want to think about using more for luhch and breakfast, 9 isnt a huge amount to have used for both meals.

    Just think you can have a bar of chocolate or something with a clear concience.

    Thanks Starlight you cant believe you can eat loads and lose weight . I did a fresh fruit salad and I had a bowl full for about 3 points i weighed the apple and it took ages for the apple to get to 1 point had to use another. The ww leader has let me borrow her black new scales and they are really good i think im going to get some if you use them you dont have to use your shopping guide is that right.

    Thanks for your help

    Ive ALWAYS eaten all my points. The first week I lost 6lbs and I lose an average of 3 a week.

    I usually save 2 or 3 points a day and have them on a Saturday night as a Take Away but I ALWAYS use them all up by the end of the week.

    Its the only way itll work :)

    If you're really struggling to use up your points, then I would just suggest eating higher point foods rather that low points. Either that or change your portion sizes.

    I wish I had trouble using up all mine! Hehe!

    Perhaps you should swap some of your low point foods for something a little higher in points - that'll help you to use them all. Remember that any points you save up have to be used before the end of the week.

    I find it easy to use up my points because I'm a big snacker! I usually just have 1-2 points for breakfast, 4-5 points for lunch and then 7-9 points for dinner, then any I have left get used on snacks. I love to snack :eek:)

    That's the ticket :)

    You will get used to it, and in a couple of weeks will be wondering how you ever managed to have points leftover.

    If you are concerned that you won't have enough points for an evening snack that you might need, why don't you plan the day out, distributing the points so that you know you'll have the right amount?
